Are You Interested In A Central Heating Installation Or Replacements in Tenbury Wells?
The most common form of heating system used in the UK is water-based central heating which is heated by a boiler. The vast majority of these heating systems are heated by mains gas, whereas the rest consists of a combination of LPG, electric, oil, solid fuel and renewable technologies. We provide solutions for gas, electric, LPG and some renewable technologies.
We install varying types of domestic and light commercial systems, such as combi boilers, heat only and system boilers and other forms of storage systems and instantaneous water heaters. From homes to small businesses, we have it covered!
So Why Use Us?
- We quote fixed prices
- We are a TrustMark registered company
- High quality of work
- Up to 10-year warranties on boilers
- We are honest and reliable
A central heating installation from us comes with up to 10 years parts and labour warranty on the boiler, which is provided by the manufacturer, plus our own guarantee on the work that we do and the equipment we provide. We are highly endorsed and offer insurance backed guarantees on our work.
We build our central heating systems around durability. To do this, we utilize fully soldered copper heating systems wherever possible. Where we need to use plastic pipes in our systems, we design the system to use dual-seal mechanical joints wherever possible over push-fit versions to increase the durability and restrict the places leaks can occur in the future.
What We Offer:
- A truly professional service
- Excellent value for money
- Systems that are designed to last
- Tailored solutions to your needs
We offer a complete range of solutions and always advise our customers on the best course of action for their needs. Our goal is to install the best value for money central heating systems, which have low maintenance requirements and will be as possible to run for our clients.
“The careful design of domestic central heating systems is generally poor, and the installation process as a whole is generally rushed. This often shows further down the line, and it does not always take that long before the costs of poor design and installation begin to affect the homeowner.”
Frequently Asked Questions
Boilers are likely to be used in the UK for many years to come, with hydrogen being the fuel they run on in the future. All current gas & LPG equipment can run on hydrogen with little to no alternation. It is only a matter of time before hydrogen production becomes cheaper than extracting fossil fuels, and when it does, expect or vast established network in the UK we use to transport gas and LPG to transport hydrogen instead.
Mains gas central heating is still cheaper than heat pumps with all their incentives (see RHI). Not only are heat pumps considerably more expensive to install, but the electricity they operate on is typically five times more expensive than mains gas. The best heat pumps give 4-5kW of heat for every 1kW of electricity they use. Until domestic heat pumps generate power from gas or the gap in costs between electiricy and natural gas close significantly, we do not foresee these being a major part of the heat and hot water production in the UK.
However, for the larger off-grid properties who have no access to mains gas, for those who can afford the initial outlay, heat pumps can often be the most cost-effective heat solution in the long term. Heating oil prices are extremely volatile, and bulk LPG gas, which is the cheapest form, is typically 3-4 times more expensive than mains gas. LPG, and to a lesser extent oil heating systems, are usually the more cost-effective solutions in off-grid smaller to medium properties due to the savings made in the installation and recovery times required to break even with heat pumps.
It is rarely cost-saving to replace an existing oil based system with an LPG based system.
It depends on the situation, only an honest and transparent company is going to be impartial and advise you on the best route. Most companies will do anything to promote what they sell.
